Researchers at the University of California, Berkeley and Northwestern University Medical School in Chicago found that, alpha-thujone, blocks brain receptors for gamma-aminobutyric acid, or GABA for short. Without access to GABA, which is a natural inhibitor of nerve impulses, neurons fire freely and their signals go out of control.

Now question is how much thujone gives the effect.

35mg/l? The body feels the effects of the alcohol, but the mind stays remarkably clear, doesn't it? It would be interesting to try a zero thujone absinthe alongside one with 100mg thujone like Century Absinthe.

Thujone has nothing to do with Absinthe. No wonder this site hasn't had a reply in a while, every one knows to stay away from here. Education in progress: when the Wormwood is drying the majority of the thujone evaporates, after the wormwood is distilled the rest of the thujone is left behind in the pot. Trace amounts show up in the final product. Some one is going to get killed because an asshole here will be promoting pure wormwood oil for consumption, sometime in the near future. Do yourself a favor stay away from idiots, thujone, and internet.
